The rumor came straight form Electronic Arts exec Frank Gibeau. Speaking to Eurogamer during the press conference for Star Wars: The Old Republic, Gibeau admitted that both The Old Republic and Warhammer were “under consideration” for a console release:

"We’re definitely looking at the opportunity to bring the MMO experience to console, without question. We’ve got this product, and we’ve got Warhammer at play. So we’re trying to look at the primary research required to understand how would you deploy it, what the client size looks like, how big is the back-end, what the play experience looks like… Once we’ve got some of those questions answered, we’ll be able to decide which is the right play to go after."

Electronic Arts is well-known for its eagerness to release a game on all available platforms. So don’t be amazed if any of the above-mentioned games will soon be announced as future releases on Xbox 360 and/or PlayStation 3.

Also, bear in mind that Wii is a very popular platform nowadays…
